Group preparation schedule?

Our company's interested in getting several folks certified. Our expectation is that there a core group of folks who could reasonably pass the exam with a bit of brushup. Does anyone have a recommended format or syllabus for a group study for SCJP 1.4?

I would get them to do Dan Chisholm's Mock Exams. (I recommend you buy some copies of the paper edition.) You can then grade your programmers into those that can sit for the exam directly and those that need a brush up. Depending upon how many programmers are involved it may be beneficial to get an in-house seminar of 4 to 5 days to get them though. Could be you could get Dan or Marcus Green to do an in-house 4 or 5 day seminar for you.
